Finally in LA I went up for lunch at the Getty Museum. Having worked at Wellcome Trust for many years it was really interesting to compare notes with their public programmes director. Big foundations with idiosyncratic founders can be a funny mixture of bold and conservative. I was completely blown away by the scale and audacity of the spaces. To say that awesome is overused in this part of the world is an understatement. But the juxtaposition of sparkling objects and vertiginous views was at times overwhelming. And the cactuses.
